Star Wars fans already knew that The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special coming to Disney+ this month would be utilizing characters from all of the different generations of the franchise, with the likes of Rey, Finn, and Poe interacting with Yoda, Darth Vader, and a young Luke Skywalker. What we didn't know, however, is that the upcoming LEGO special will also include the beloved characters of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, the new hit TV series. In the first trailer for the Holiday Special, Baby Yoda, Mando, and IG-11 cross paths with the rest of the iconic characters. You can watch the full trailer in the video above!
The new special follows Rey after the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, as she sets off with BB-8 for an ancient Jedi Temple, in hopes of learning more about the Force. On her journey, Rey discovers a key that allows her to unlock the secrets of time, and she winds up interacting with some of the biggest names of Star Wars past.
The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special includes returning Star Wars actors such as Kelly Marie Tran, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Matt Lanter, Tom Kane, James Arnold Taylor, and Dee Bradley Baker.
Not only will some of the classic Star Wars characters be appearing in this special, but they will be interacting with characters from the new generation. For example, Rey squares off against Darth Vader in a lightsaber duel.
"We wanted to give a wink and a nod to the original," said executive producer Josh Rimes in a recent interview. "It's a celebration of the saga. A lot of characters will be interacting with different characters and perhaps even different versions of themselves at different ages."
You can check out the special's official synopsis below.
"Directly following the events of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Rey leaves her friends to prepare for Life Day as she sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?"
